HollyPicks…
(17 items)

I am loving this sharing my finds with others, it makes it even more exciting, I hope this is correct.
Not everyone's cup of tea, but is mine.
I bought this in a charity shop for a £1.00. I am unsure of it's date... Does anyone know? marking: Beswick, England in grey/blue

    When identifying Beswick the numbers on the bottom are important, usually a 4 digit number. Phil.

    Thank you PhilDavidAlexanderMorris , You must all think me stupid missing the numbers 1496-1 (found it). Will be looking out for this next time with my glasses on.

    Phil is fine thanks !

    This shape is 1496-1, but strangely there are also shapes 1496-2 and -3, which is something that I have never come across. Was checking the price guide which is well over 358 pages.

    It was issued 1957-1972 which is a fairly lengthy span. It came in 3 sizes, hence the -1,-2-,-3 ! # 1 is the largest at 10 inches.

    Assorted colours, 1. decorations - satin matt
    2. White and black - matt finish.
